Monday’s Meaning + More about the Week

Monday’s Meaning + More about the Week


Why do people hate Monday’s so much? I know I am one of those people who believe Monday’s should be part of the weekend, or optional at work. It may sound crazy, but at least I know I’m not the only person who feels this way. What about all those sayings about Monday? Seems like majority of people hate Monday’s. So I wanted to know some more information about the day, and this what I enjoyed reading most about the day that Garfield is most famous for hating! 


“Monday is the day of the week between Sunday and Tuesday. According to the traditional Christian, Islamic and Hebrew calendars, it is the second day of the week, and according to international standard ISO 8601 it is the first day of the week. In the West, it is the first day of the work week, whereas in most Muslim countries and Israel, it is the second day of the work week. The name of Monday is derived from Old English Mōnandæg and Middle English Monenday, which means “moon day”.”

What do the Names of the Week Mean?

“An answer to this question is necessarily closely linked to the language in question. Whereas most languages use the same names for the months (with a few Slavonic languages as notable exceptions), there is great variety in names that various languages use for the days of the week. A few examples will be given here.”

  • Except for the sabbath, Jews simply number their week days.
  • A related method is partially used in Portuguese and Russian:
  • English Portuguese Russian Meaning of Russian name
  1. Monday segunda-feira ponedelnik After “do-nothing”
  2. Tuesday terça-feira vtornik Second
  3. Wednesday quarta-feira sreda Middle
  4. Thursday quinta-feira chetverg Fourth
  5. Friday sexta-feira pyatnitsa Fifth
  6. Saturday sabado subbota Sabbath
  7. Sunday domingo voskresenye Resurrection

“Most Latin-based languages connect each day of the week with one of the seven “planets” of the ancient times: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. French, for example, uses:”

  • English French “Planet”
  1. Monday lundi Moon
  2. Tuesday mardi Mars
  3. Wednesday mercredi Mercury
  4. Thursday jeudi Jupiter
  5. Friday vendredi Venus
  6. Saturday samedi Saturn
  7. Sunday dimanche (Sun)

“The link with the sun has been broken in French, but Sunday was called dies solis (day of the sun) in Latin.”

“It is interesting to note that also some Asiatic languages (for example, Hindi, Japanese, and Korean) have a similar relationship between the week days and the planets.”

“English has retained the original planets in the names for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. For the four other days, however, the names of Anglo-Saxon or Nordic gods have replaced the Roman gods that gave name to the planets. Thus, Tuesday is named after Tiw, Wednesday is named after Woden, Thursday is named after Thor, and Friday is named after Freya.”

Sometimes I think about how easy it would be to die. I realize that sometimes the pain of living can be more than that of dying. I, like you, wouldn’t leave a note. Anyone who cared enough to find my reasoning would find the random letters I write to no one. They’re everywhere. These letters pieced together would explain everything, though I did not write them for the intent of leaving clues as to why I chose to die. These letters have kept me sane when no one else would listen or I just simply couldn’t speak – only write.

I’ll admit I lost a lot of my sanity when you left. And even though it’s been 231 days, I’m still awakened every night by dreams of you. Whether they be good or bad, they hurt all the same. I find myself being selfish and wishing the good dreams were…

The Other Side Of Peter Pan Syndrome: When Your Friends Grow Up And Leave You Behind

Thought Catalog

There comes a time in our lives where all of us wake up and realize that it’s time for us to grow up and accept the so called “adult” way of living. The time when we finally get our shit together and forget the way of living back when we were below the age of 18. When mistakes were made and Neverland felt like it really did come to life for us, but what if you’re just another Peter Pan?

Whether a male or female, you’ve had difficulty of accepting the fact that the important people in your life are finally moving forward while you’re still stuck in limbo. It’s as if your mind is holding you back from keeping up with the flock and is just too stubborn. The problem is that you can’t accept the reality that you need change and though you know you want to keep…
